The Baylake Bank Tall Ship Festival Returning in 2013

Baylake Bank Tall Ship Festival 2013August 24, 2012

Sturgeon Bay, WI-- The Baylake Bank Tall Ship Festival is returning to Green Bay, Wisconsin and is planned for August 16-18, 2013.

"The Baylake Bank Tall Ship Festival has become symbolic of our organization’s support and involvement with the community. We are committed to the local economy, and sponsoring this major festival is a wonderful way for us to help connect our goals with the prosperity of the community and our entire area,” said Robert Cera Chief Executive Officer for Baylake Bank.

Baylake Bank was also the title sponsor of the event in 2006 and 2010. Green Bay remains the only city in the state to have hosted a Tall Ships event of this size and scope. The 2013 event is expected to draw an estimated 60,000 people, and create an economic impact of several million dollars.

PMI Entertainment Group will stage the event, with at least eight Tall Ships® docking at Leicht Memorial Park in downtown Green Bay. Many of the ships will be available for tours and some will offer river excursions. This festival promises to be the best one yet, with PMI working to make it even more family friendly and expanding it into the night with music.

Five after Five will be new for Baylake Bank Tall Ship Festival 2013. For $5 after 5 pm, people will be able to enter the festival grounds to enjoy concerts on Friday and Saturday nights in the company of the tall ships as a majestic back drop. The festival will also include food and other entertainment throughout the weekend, including a hands-on children’s area and ship educational area.

We’re already counting down the days to next year’s awesome event! Volunteer and festival information can be found at http://www.tallshipgreenbay.com/
